Power disc brakes and a big rumpty rump cam DO NOT play well together! O:) Depending on how much duration you decide to go with, some mild cams may be OK with the addition of a vacuum storage canister mounted somewhere in the engine bay.

In the late 60s, when the first Z28 Camaros with off road cams came out they were NOT offered with power brakes for this reason. They did have a manual disk brake available but not one with power assist. Something to think about!

your truck has factory Manual brakes..No Booster.
And about the power brakes I use a Vacuum canister and a good sized cam and my brakes work fine..at least at the track. But as some have already said you do not need a huge cam with a blower.
